, but this is certainly not the new beginning president obama had once envisioned. with the country set to hit the so-called fiscal cliff at year's end president obama and congress are seemingly committed to repeating their rhetoric and, perhaps, their mistakes as they ostensibly work toward avoiding the calamity of going over that fiscal clef. house speaker this morning made it clear. he thinks this is the president's moment, and he called upon the president to lead, and he called on the president to find middle ground between a bitterly divided republican house and democratically controlled senate now, this is an opportunity for the president to lead. >> this is his moment to engage the congress and work toward a solution that can pass both chambers. and earlier this week the president and i had a short conversation. it was cordial. i think we both understand that trying to find a way to avert the fiscal cliff is important for our country. lou: the speaker also noted that when he came to agreements with the president in the past that he has had no problem, as he put it, getting legislation passed i

but for the country and our allies. he and his predecessor are not willing to say the obama administration is lying about the lack of danger from militant islam. killing osama bin laden, the president plays it down consistently. the general would not do that. the president will probably try to find a yes man to send over to the agency so he has one less thing to worry about as he promotes the narrative of increasingly peaceful relations with the muslim world. the ideal contender from the president's viewpoint is john brennan that has followed lockstep with the deceit that mr. obama has hoisted about the american people from the threat of islamic militants have spectacularly misled americans early in the first administration when he said the word jihad to do with military affairs, which is a blatant lie. i think he would be the perfect person for obama, but he was disliked at the agency as an individual. >> how important is the man at the top? >> he is very important if he is serious about the business we do. the agency, increasingly, has bet the forefront of american activity overseas. we are doing

that of course there was this historic frontier of electing the first non-white president as the country did four years ago. and even though 53% of the public voted for obama, he had 70% approval by the time of his inauguration. there was something that people felt good about america for having crossed this frontier. but the reelection was a sense, sort of the normalization of success for an african american president. and not just saying, "okay, yeah, we tried, but you saw how that went. you know, he wasn't really up to the job." that was, again, this great republican ad. you know, you tried, he tried, it's not working. let's, you know, let's go back to the way things are done. there was a fascinating comment by somebody on election eve who said with a straight face that, "this election, 'cause they're changing demographics, will be the last time there are four white males on the national ticket." and, you know, wait a minute, that's a sign of sort of the normalization of barack obama, like colin powell, as an american, as opposed to an african-american. >> well, he is as much white as he is bla

speech. he didn't embrace president obama as the person to lead us forward. he didn't throw his full weight behind him. he didn't talk about a new vision for the country that we could forge together in our actions. he was really a selfish narcissistic kind of person. the extraordinary narcissism collectively speaking white men in control is really facing the erosion of a broader movement that says we're not going to stand for that anymore. so the republican party will either lead or they will be left behind. they are outdated dinosaurs dealing with the relics of the past and can't deal with what's going on in the future. they will be left behind. but they will be kicking and screaming, as we see now, with bitter language that denounces our president and collectively the aspirations of african-americans and others. >> but if the republican party doesn't change and if their leadership doesn't change and if they don't think differently on this issue of diversity and race and acceptance and they standby idle, doesn't that fuel extremist groups to feel emboldened to do more things than wh
